Omega-3 and Vitamin D Could Help Clear Alzheimer’s Amyloid Plaques

 

Researchers have determined how omega-3 and vitamin D3 can help boost the immune system’s capability to remove the brain of amyloid plaques, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.[1] The researchers discovered signaling networks and key genes regulated by the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and also vitamin D3 which can help manage inflammation and greatly boost plaque clearance.

Vitamin D and Immune Cells Stimulate Bone Marrow Disease

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kobe, Japan — The bone marrow disease myelofibrosis is stimulated by excessive signalling from vitamin D and immune cells known as macrophages, reveals a Japanese research team. These findings could help to develop alternative treatments that do not target problem genes. The team was led by Research Fellow Kanako Wakahashi and Junior Associate Professor Yoshio Katayama (Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine) and the findings were published on February 4 in the online edition of Blood.

Vitamin D could lower the risk of developing diabetes

The benefits of vitamin D in promoting bone health are already well known. A new study suggests that vitamin D also may promote greater insulin sensitivity, thus lowering glucose levels and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The benefits of vitamin D in promoting bone health are already well known. A new study out of Brazil suggests that vitamin D also may promote greater insulin sensitivity, thus lowering glucose levels and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Results are published online today in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

Other recent studies have shown a clear relationship between vitamin D and glycemic control, suggesting that vitamin D increases insulin sensitivity and improves pancreatic beta-cell function. In this cross-sectional study involving 680 Brazilian women aged 35 to 74 years, the goal was to evaluate the possible association between vitamin D deficiency and increased glycemia.

Vitamina D em alta no organismo está associada à longevidade

 

 

 

 

 

 

Para uma longevidade saudável, buscamos uma baixa frequência de mutações dentro do genoma de nossas células, como mudanças nas sequências do ácido nucleico e mudanças nos cromossomas (DNA). A isto, chamamos de estabilidade genômica ou longevidade. A vitamina Djá mostrou proteger as proteínas e membranas celulares contra o estresse oxidativo, e recentemente um estudo a associou à biologia dos glóbulos brancos – parte do sistema imune do organismo – e à estabilidade genômica.
